Characters described by the Chaucer in his tails are surreal in characters. They might be chosen from reality and also might be fake ones but the thing is that they represent their class and creed. He tried to break the myth of that socalled trait of human being.

The characters here represent a contrast between reality and exaggeration. Some of the characters are very close to reality while some of them have exaggerated traits and tendencies.

The knight’s tales represents chivalry and virtue while that of the squire is of love and intrigue. Hence these two are a contrast. One is more real and the other exaggerated. The knight represents what people should be like with good manners and values while the squire has the kind of traits which might not be ideal but are realistic.
